Covid-19 Update About Motorcycle Live

The 2022 edition of Motorcycle Live will take place at the NEC Birmingham as a face-to-face exhibition between 19.11.2022 and 27.11.2022. The hosting location will feature the latest and strictest COVID-19 preventative measures. These will include a 3G entry policy, mandatory mask-wearing and social distancing regulations. Before entering the venue, participants must show vaccination passports, negative test results or proof of recovery. Attendees must wear medical masks in all indoor areas as well as maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres. 


It can be said that Motorcycle Live is the lifeblood of the two-wheeler industry in the UK as it’s a direct lifeline between manufacturers, professionals and bike enthusiasts. The international trade show has been making headlines since 1981 and currently stands at the top as the biggest event in the industry within the entire UK, so you’re certain that you’re going to be in the spotlight when you exhibit at Motorcycle Live. The event used to be called International Motorcycle and Scooter Show until 2010, which was when it was rebranded to its current name and image. As the name suggests, visitors will be able to discover the full breadth of bikes and motorcycles on display from classic biker two-wheelers to super bikes and race bikes, but that’s only scratching the surface as visitors will also get access to accessories, components and modifications.


Motorcycle Live follows a strict annual schedule and arrives during the second half of November. The international bike show lasts for nine days in total and is based in Birmingham, UK. Editions are open to visitors from the general public and professionals interested in buying new bikes and related gear. MCIA Events Ltd is the official organiser of the event in partnership with Bikesure Insurance and the NEC serves as the host for the duration of the event. Work hours are varied on the different days: from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm on the first two days, 10:00 am until 17:00 pm on the next five days, 09:00 am until 18:00 pm on Saturday and 09:00 am until 17:00 pm on the last Sunday. The NEC is situated right next door to Birmingham International Rail Station, which means there are multiple ways to get to the exhibition grounds without having to rent a car.

Audience & Statistics

How come is Motorcycle Live regarded as the cream of the crop among two-wheeler circles in the UK? It all comes down to numbers. The bike show outshines everyone else in terms of attendance numbers – last edition registered over 104,000 bike enthusiasts and professionals who have gone through the exhibition halls to see the newest models from 46 leading bike manufacturers in the entire world. In addition, more than 220 exhibitors and retailers have their own stands selling not just parts and accessories, but also much needed gear. Part of the reason why these numbers are so high has to do with how well Motorcycle Live inserts itself into biker culture. Visitors have a lot of interactivity with bikes, can see them at the top of their performance at the Moto-Cirque Arena and engage with professional racers face to face.
